How To Run A Social Media Marketing Campaign Using Just a @BlackBerry
Greetings Dear Readers
Wolfgang Bonisch @charlotte_niche and @fredfelton at the @psasouthafrica National Convention 2012
This has been a crazy month for me helping out PSASA with some social media marketing
for their National Convention. My company Falconscove helped them out with some social media
strategy and then the social media marketing at the convention. Most of this was done using
just a @BlackBerry
Here are ways you too can market a event or convention using just a @BlackBerry
1. Make sure you have UberSocial installed on your Blackberry
This proved to be my number one tool at the Convention. Wherever I went I used
my UberSocial which gives you the wonderful options of sharing posts to Twitter, Facebook,
Linkedin and your Black Berry Messenger.
2. Upload As Many Pics as you can
It has been proven that people look more at pictures than at statements so during your event
try and upload lots of pics. Make sure you add the hashtag associated with the Event.
3. Do some live blogging
For this I chose the Tumblr App for Blackberry and I must say it is rock solid, it works everytime
and automatically posts to Twitter and Facebook for you. So during the event or at the end of the day
do some live blogging about the Speakers or the Event.
4. Tell your Tweeps what is going on at the Event
People are curious and they want to know what is going on at Events. So if you hear a gem
or a nugget of wisdom spread it with your Tweeps. They will remember that.
5. Make sure your battery is fully charged.
I know it sounds like a stupid thing to say but so many people forget to do this. So just in case
take another battery with or your power cord and charge when necessary.
